Medical Malpractice

NYC Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Medical mistakes kill and injure thousands of people a year. Ellis Law (with our co-counsel) represents persons who suffer serious permanent injuries as a result of the carelessness or negligence of doctors, hospitals, dentists and other medical care providers. No matter how careless a medical provider has been, under the law, the value of the case is solely dependent upon the injuries caused by that carelessness.

Full Compensation For Patients Seriously Injured By Medical Mistakes

If you were injured or a family member died because of a medical mistake, call 1-800-LAW-7777 to speak with a skilled medical malpractice lawyer. Ellis Law has the knowledge, skill and resources needed to bring successful medical malpractice claims. Working with doctors, surgeons and other medical experts, we work hard to establish liability for injuries caused by the incompetence of medical professionals. We prepare each medical malpractice case for trial from the very beginning, making sure to demonstrate as fully as possible the full effect of a serious injury on our client and his or her family.

Some common types of medical malpractice claims include a doctor whose carelessness causes an injury, a doctor who makes an existing injury worse, or a doctor who fails to diagnose an illness, or fails to diagnose it quickly enough. Other examples include:

  • Surgery and anesthesia errors
  • Emergency room delays and negligent treatment
  • Birth injury and cerebral palsy
  • Failure to diagnose or delay in diagnosing cancer, breast cancer, heart attack, meningitis, stroke or other serious medical condition
  • Brain damage caused by lack of oxygen during birth
  • Medication errors and prescription mistakes
  • Spinal cord injuries caused by severing a nerve during back or neck surgery
  • Misdiagnosis or late diagnosis
  • Obstetrical or gynecological errors
  • Surgical errors, negligence and failure to adequately monitor care after surgery
  • Infection and sepsis caused by negligence
  • Incorrectly reading X-rays, MRI or CT scans
  • Laboratory mistakes and misdiagnosis

Doctors, nurses, chiropractors, dentists, podiatrists and hospital staff may all be involved in cases of medical malpractice.

In order to prove medical malpractice, the injured patient must present testimony at trial from medical experts to show that the defendant acted negligently. The court costs, stenographer's fees, etc. and the unbelievably high costs of these expert witnesses make medical malpractice cases extremely expensive. We know of several doctors who charge $5,000 to $12,000 per day or any part of a day to testify! Because of these high costs, many times it is difficult to recover enough money to cover the expenses of the case and the legal fees, unless a serious permanent injury is involved. We do not feel it is fair to our clients to take a case that could result in only enough money to pay the case expenses and our legal fees, and leave little or nothing for them. Thus, in fairness to you, we will only be able to represent you for a medical malpractice claim if you have suffered a severe, permanent injury.
